Finished Sahara!

I was afraid that I would never get the chance to get this posted....I finally finished my version.

Before: April 01, 2007



Finished Project: June 03, 2007



Close Up of the Neck Lace:



Yarns used:

Main Color: Berroco Glace - color 2579 (Chocolate) - Used 8 Skeins
Accent Color: Berroco Zodiac - Color 9611(Aries) - Used 2 skeins

Modifications - none. I made it exactly as called for for the large. I did change the neck lace a bit by purl 3 TOG in the front. My wrist would just not let me do the called for application.

This was my first time participating with the group and I must admit that watching everyone finish their Saharas and Rusted Roots spurred me on to finish. I will post pictures of me in the sweater as soon as it is dry (blocking now).

I am looking forward to the next one!

I really love this in chocolate! The neck/hem done in contrasting looks great on your version! If you're ever near me, don't leave this unattended, or I might have to try my hardest to make it mine!!!

That's very pretty, nice color choices and I liked what you did with the collar.
